Tatiana started Bejuba! Entertainment 10 years ago to specialize in the executive production, financing, co-production and distribution of children’s and family entertainment. The goal was to work with producers to get their babies off the ground. The company now has over 650 half hours of programming and continues to grow. Most of its award-winning programming is on air around the globe, with over 5 series on air or about to be on air in the US. Tatiana is known as a match maker, putting production companies, studios, producers and broadcasters together. Her specialty is closing financing and co-productions. She has consulted for companies like National Geographic Kids, and has worked around the globe for BBCWW, and Endemol in the UK, NHK in Japan, and TVO in Canada, all the while with a focus on the business and creative end of the entertainment business.
Children’s became her prime area of focus when she became MD of the newly created Egmont Imagination UK, a distribution arm of Egmont Imagination of Denmark. Some of the programs in Bejuba!’s catalogue include: The Hive, Stella and Sam, Jar Dwellers, Big Block Singsong, and Ricky Sprocket. Tatiana started her career working in production at TVOntario in Toronto, Canada and graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Arts (B.A.A.) in Radio and Television Arts at Ryerson University in Toronto.
